with fixing it. things like the supervision of the process of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for atf. my basic question is why? why does fbi have one supervising and atf has a different process overseen by the same doj. the scope of the task that you mention in your report with atf if there is irregular functioning criminal function overlap at times and there are obvious issues. and i'm going to either tunica comment. the size of the agency and what they're trying to accomplish. as i read through your report, got to page 338 and there was a very interesting comment that basically alluded to the fact that atf of phoenix is over their head. they were trying to take on the massive task in outlets like they were trying to accomplish something big, but they didn't have the right people, were not coordinated this particular group of asians were in way over their head and should not be engaged. again, goes back to the scope of the task. i've got one more issue it to visit, but i want to talk about the issue of regulatory versus criminal responsibility in the task given to

intrusions and the threat and sophistication of these attacks is growing as we speak. earlier this year, f.b.i. director robert mueller warned that, and i quote -- "the cyber threat will pose the number-one threat to our country in the near future." now, mr. president, the reason i came here today, in addition to acknowledging the sacrifice of those that were made on september 11 and the sacrifice that have been made by tens of thousands if not millions of americans since then and the kind of efforts that have been put in place that will hopefully prevent us from such an attack in the future is to discuss a failure on the part of this congress to address this most imminent and threatening attack, the cyber attack that i previously mentioned. the week before the august recess -- and particularly in an election year, of course will always be filled with partisanship here in washington, but we really hit a low point this year in adjourning for the august recess as we rushed to vote on a cyber bill, which i did support, but did not convey the wishes of many of us who have worked for weeks and mont

, to ensure that all trainers in our u.s. military, our fbi and other u.s. security agencies be retrained, so they would be brainwashed and political correctness towards islam. be enforced islamic speech codes here in the united states and all done with the help of our president and secretary of state. it took only days for the obama it administration to reply to the letter from the islamists promising to set up a task force with the same organization who immediately began our counterterrorism training in every federal agency across-the-board. it is breathtaking, never been done before but when members of congress, myself included, started to ask questions about the identities of who these people were who were leading this purge in our government and what it was they were purging from our training material, the obama administration told us the information was close to. it was classified. we couldn't know who was behind it. i'm here to say my friends that we are now today very late in the game. we are quickly losing our sense of who we are in the nation and we are losing our ability to identif
